  • Always fun to see creativity under constraints. Good inspo for Nanowrimo.All 9 comics in this collection were by white men. 1/3 of the comics featured penises. Soooooere's that.



  • 24 Hour Comics is a mini-book about making comics in 24 hours. That's right, 24 pages in 24 hours idea, writing, penciling, inking, even coloring if you wish, in 24 hours or less! Interesting idea ("do it in one day!"), and here is the book to summarize its effects, 20 years later. Can it be done?Scott McCloud had this idea in 1990, and he and Steve Bissette completed a first go around August that year; technically, Scott finished first. Since then, the "24-hour" or similar competitions have ap [...]


  • I've had this book for a while. The designation of 24Hour Comics Day has inspired me to try it this year- October 2nd-3rd, 2010. I can't draw to save a lick, so my attempt will be a spectacular failure, but I'll learn.This book has the first 2 24 hour comics in it- McCloud's and Steve Bissette's and a few others. It's got Neil Gaiman's and Adrian Tomine. It's got a wordless story. It has a brief history of the 24Hour Comic, up to it's point. The book was assembled before the creation of 24Hour C [...]


  • It's a collection of comics written on the challenge to write a 24 page comic in 24 hours, so of course it is an uneven collection! And this is the best he had at the time… But it has some gems in it… including the self drawn Neil Gaiman story, one of the very best for sure… and one by Swamp Thing artists Steve Bissette. I like sketchy art and stories, vs polished, over-written and over-designed collaborations, so this was okay for me.


  • 24 Hour Comics collects nine of the earliest comics ever created under the rules of Scott McCloud's ridiculous challenge. The challenge is: write, pencil and ink a 24 page comic in just 24 hours- and the clock doesn't stop ticking if you fall asleep. These artists prove you can create a whole comic story in just one day, and also that as cartoonists get tired, the stories get morbid. A slightly mixed bag, but interesting to read.


  • This makes me want to write the comic. You can really see the insanity of the time lapse, the deadline. You can see these writers brains being wracked for ideas, their stuff just comes pouring out. It's mostly cockamamie, but there's a lot of truth to it, a lot of gripping mania. I love the idea. Scott Mccloud is a genius. My favorites were David Lasky's and Steve Bissette's.



  • As with all anthologies, some hits and some misses. But the overall quality is consistently high, all the more amazing given the 24-hour time limit! Rather inspiring, in fact!
